Owner, Prime Proposal Group, Inc.

As a certified MBE/WBE, we are a proven and professional creative services firm with 20+ years of graphic design, proposal, and grant writing experience. Prime provides high-quality consulting from pre-bid to award. We manage most requests regardless of size, scope, or service. Prime works with new and existing businesses to review solicitation expectations and submittal requirements. We help many women-owned companies with growth and strategy plans to improve business positioning. Prime also works with D/M/WBEs, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), nonprofits (NPOs), professional associations, and a host of service providers.

The $5,000 Coalition to Back Black Businesses grant was a small yet powerful tool for my business. I utilized the funds to purchase more technical equipment and a new iPad Pro for my assistant to help with more design and technical writing projects. Additionally, I used the funds to purchase more digital ads to target new demographics on the West Coast, which translated to over $32,500 in direct sales. This means this grant delivered six times the revenue. The funds also allowed me to engage a community I didn’t know existed. There are so many minority and women-owned firms in Silicon Valley that are often overlooked and undervalued. Now, I can lend more support to these organizations to help them build a website and brand presence, bid on contracts, obtain a minority certification, and more. As of now, I have nearly 400 customers and by the end of this year, we will double this figure, thanks to this opportunity!
